Trip Reminder
 

Recently, a letter was sent out, regarding Year 5&6's trip, at the beginning of November, to the Museum of Cannock Chase to launch the topic of WWII: A child's war.

We will be taking the Year 5 children on Monday 1st November and the Year 6 children on Tuesday 2nd November.

During the trip, the children will get to experience a mock air raid and black out, they will find out what life living on rations was like, investigate a home in the 1940s and become a museum curator for the day.

If you haven't already done so, please could you return the permission slip on the letter that has been sent home. If you haven't received a letter, please contact the school and we will provide one. 

With half term approaching and the trip being on the first two days back after the holiday, we want to be sure we are all prepared for the trip before the break. 

Regards,

Mr Tennuci.

Chestnut Science Investigation
 
This week, Chestnut set up an investigation to observe the the growth of bacteria on a slice of bread. 
Different factors were placed on the bread. These factors were things that already contain bacteria and Chestnut are going to find out which causes bacteria to spread and grow the quickest. 
These factors included: wiping the bread on a computer keyboard, pressing our hands on the bread, coughing on the bread and pressing the bread with hands, that had been cleaned with anti-bacteria spray.
By Friday, from our observations, no bacteria was visible on the bread (just by looking at it). 
Chestnut will continue their observations during next week to determine if the predictions they made were accurate.
Year 5/6's Viking Hook Day!
